Hmmm there is a problem hiring people? Might be a regional thing as I am told by HR they get calls and resumes for IT people all the time.

Benies? Well a great boss is a HUGE benefit. He leaves you alone if he feels you know what you are doing. I have a free hand to do just about anything I want. A company charge plate is useful especially when you are allowed to buy tech books as long as you don't go crazy. We get a free dinner on Wednesday and every so often a gathering with Beer and and wine.

Down side? Health Insurence is medicore. 401K is mediorcre. Training is rare though I am getting my first course in about 4 years. I have reached as far as I can go career wise. We are a staff of 4 and they aren't going to offer a managership when they have a director with 3 workers. Though there is hints of becoming the security manager. So a career path is good!

    Yes, most HR departments will get calls and resumes for IT people all the time. The problem is - they're not for good people :-)

    The problem isn't hiring people. The problem is identifying, hiring, keeping, and supporting people that are worth paying for their work. HR departments, hiring managers, and so on, tend to hire people based on the wrong characteristics, and when they luck into a good hire the bosses have a tendency to turn them into bad hires.
